what are they doing to each other? don't do it! there's some chance this might not be the u.s. congress. if it was in the house of representatives, i guess they'd be going house. all right. that happened in the ukraine. not only did i enjoy that fight people climbing on one another to get into the fight i loved the quote afterwards: >> cenk: oh, i see. they're worse off than we are. let's bring in michael shure to talk about boehner and how this nonsense is shaping up. good to see you. >> i think i have a little ukrainian in me, too. >> cenk: it's cool, it's cool, man. let's start with boehner. today he came out and gave the same stonewall answer that he always does, saying hey i want low taxes for the top 2%, i don't want to raise their taxes at all. what's amazing is how similar his language is to the same things he said back in 1993 dealing with president clinton. watch that. >> we republicans are rely gated to the sidelines even though we have a solid plan ready to go to reduce the deficit a plan with no tax increases and true cuts in government spending. >> the president still has

is apparently moving its chemical weapons. now, of course is a red line for nato and the u.s. and even russia is concerned about this, saying if you use chemical weapons, then the international community will have to respond. already 40,000 dead in syria. >> in iran, they have apparently captured another of our drones. >> they claim they brought down a scan eekle on the ground the zone. it's a small surveillance drone generally used to watch their own ships not an armed drone. if iran brought it down, the u.s. will see that as an aggressive action. last month they tried to shoot one down in the same place. ayear ago iran claimed to have brought down a more technical drone. >> cenk: that is three different instances of at least firing or capturing one of our drones. the last time the americans said no absolutely not, one of our drones just happened to get lost. later, they said yeah, ok, that was our drone. by the way we want it back from iran. we're just flying an illegal drone over your air space would you give i did back to us. iran said no. take a look at this map. look at our bases and fl

then we got regulation in china. in 1911 in the u.s. we had the triangle shirt waist fire that led to deaths and that wound up giving us more regulations. sometimes regulation saves lives. remember that the next time you see the anti-regulatory fever that you see so many other places on television. all right let's bring in teresa hahn the director of a labor rights organization, and they were the ones conducting investigations of working conditions in factories around the globe. teresa, do you have a sense of when walmart said those are too expensive, we can't do it. how true or untrue is that relative to their cost? is it really that would be prohibitively expensive or a regular course of business? >> it's something that walmart absolutely has the financial ability to do and could do it for a relatively small part of their overall finances. it's a matter of political will in walmart and the companies are not willing to put forward to them what is a relatively small amount of money that would ultimately save the lives of hundreds if not thousands of their workers for their supplier

. and china and india won't do because. they use the u.s. as an excuse. and since copenhagen voluntarily agreement emissions have done nothing but go up since last year. now that the president is reaching out to get a deal, we don't know if they're going to get it. >> but in some ways its talking to the republicans having something in place. they don't have specifics. now the china and india doesn't have the specifics. we're the ones with the specifics. >> cenk: if he's negotiating with them like he is with boehner, perhaps even better. the republicans at the end of these letters at the beginning said we had a status quo election. i got bad news for you guys. you didn't. you lost. now thank you michael. when we come come back back, homeland, is it realistic? we have a form c.i.a. agent who will come on the prime minister program in just a minute and tell us other assessment and its surprisingly realistic, it turns out. >> what are you doing? [ choking ] >> you still don't get it, do you? >> cenk: well, if you don't, we're going to explain it in the next segment. then later on, park avenu

government's response. the u.s. attorney in seattle put out this: >> cenk: way to change with the times. of course, all the conservatives who want to crack down on pot are the same guys, state's rights oh, you want to smoke pot, you don't have a right to do that. one of the concerns is how about d.u.i.'s and how will these new laws affect that. >> you want to know why i pulled you over? littering and smoking the reefer. >> driving while high. more drivers are toking up. yet studies in this shows too much marijuana affects coordination and judgment. >> one of the first and important being the reduced ability to divide one's attention. >> marijuana advocates say it is less debilitating than alcohol. some say those who drive within three hours of smoking possibility are twice as likely to cause a crash. >> cenk: the seattle police department put out a picket with some words on it that might be very clear as to what their in tent is for their citizens and police officers. the dude abides. welcome to a new america. i love it. let's have a discussion about this. we've got vivian mctigue the e

problems in the u.s.? not exactly. in at least seven u.s. states constitutional provisions are in place that bar atheists from public office and arkansas has a law that bars an atheist from testifying as a witness at a trial. of course, those laws are unconstitutional, and the supreme court ruled back on it on 1961, but those states don't give a damn. they're not interested. in kentucky the department of homeland security said that you must acknowledge that god protects us. if you don't then you got trouble. god help us all. ironic. kentucky would approve. when we come back, homeland--speaking of homeland security. is it realistic? we've got a c.i.a. agent to talk about it. >> are you presently in alabama? >> no, do you intend to answer truthfully here today? do you intend to answer truthfully here today? >> yes. >> all right, here is our former c.i.a. agent. she'll tell us what is realistic and what is not and especially the polygraph test. i'm interested in that when we come back.

denominator is guns. let me show you a chart of assault from the u.s. and other countries from the 1960s on. how violent is this country? all the developed countries are down below. all those lines that are blue? see the red one at top we're so far ahead of everybody in violence it is absolutely repull repulsive. to give a sense of the last 50 years. out of the top 25 mass shootings, we have 15 of them. we're number one. when is it going to be enough? when we actually do something? all right michael moore had a tweet that i found to be interesting. you'll see these and then people will say hey, more guns are the answer. he said, if only the verse victim, adam lanza's mother, had been a gun owner she could have stopped this before it started. of course that's ironic, and he means it to be ironic. she was a gun owner. he used her guns to kill her and then 26 other people, and then himself. she had 12 guns. what happened? her mentally disturbed son got the guns, and in the end wound up with 28 dead. having guns in the house doesn't help you. it gets you killed. okay, i know, but gun enthusias

for the u.s. government and we're the good guys. we don't play by the rules that our enemies do. we adhere to the geneva conventions and during this period, i don't think we were able to say that. i would say as a result, we probably had a much harder time recruiting human sources because we didn't have that moral high ground. >> cenk: because the moral high ground is not a matter of just morality, it's gaining their trust and you need that in order to get the information. >> very much so, and, you know, is specially with our targets our main targets bin terrorists, we need people with access to information to these networks and winning the trust of those people is extremely difficult so when we start using the tactics of our enemies we lose that ability to say we're different. so i think that that period in the c.i.a.'s history was a really dark stain on oh the agency and quite frankly, our country. full disclosure, i haven't seen "zero dark 30" yet. i'll form my own opinion whether or not i think it condones torture, but i think if it gives the impression that torture led to the capture
